An important message to our supporters

Moorelands Community Service places a high value on our relationship with you, our donors. Without your support, we would not be able to achieve our mission to help kids bridge the opportunity gap. We thank you for your commitment to us.

We believe that transparency and accountability are essential to our success. In 2017, Moorelands was successfully accredited by the Imagine Canada Standards program.

The goal of the Standards Program is to help Canadian charities and nonprofits improve their practices and increase transparency in five foundational areas: board governance, financial accountability & transparency, fundraising, staff management, and volunteer involvement.

As an accredited organization, it has been recognized that we meet with accepted practices for soliciting and managing donor dollars. This is important because you, our supporters, are entitled to transparency and to making the greatest impact possible with your investment in us.

If you have any questions about our adherence to the Standards Program, please feel free to e-mail Maureen Lewis or phone her at 416-466-9987 ext. 307, or download a copy of our financial statements. You can learn more about the Standards Program by going to www.imaginecanada.ca.
